Arrow Exterminators Participates in March of Dimes Signature Event
Team Arrow walks to support stronger, healthier babies
For over a decade Arrow employees have been supporting the March
of Dimes through their time and donations. This year's campaign
raised over $7500 through individual contributions, carwashes, a
silent auction and other fundraising activities. The campaign
culminated with the 2011 March for Babies event, a 5.3 mile walk
through downtown Atlanta, held on April 30th. Seventy of Arrow's
metro Atlanta team members, family members and friends helped the
March of Dimes ensure healthy futures for babies by participating
in this worthwhile event.
The March of Dimes is a not-for-profit organization whose
mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth
defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. This year's March
for Babies fundraising event had over 11,000 walkers who together
raised $1.2 million that will fund programs and research that help
babies begin healthy lives.
"We feel very fortunate to be able to participate in the March
for Babies, and we had such a fun time while helping give back to
the community we serve," commented Emily Thomas Kendrick, chief
executive officer and president of Arrow Exterminators. She
continued, "The March of Dimes is an outstanding organization that
impacts the lives of so many families and Arrow Exterminators is
proud to be a part of it."
